The bill passed 69 to 30, with 19 Republicans joining all Democrats. Included in this bill is: $20 Billion to ‘Advance Racial Equity and Environmental Justice’, $100 Billion for New Public Schools and Making School Lunches ‘Greener’, $12 Billion for Community Colleges, Billions to Eliminate ‘Racial and Gender Inequities’ in STEM, and the list goes on and on House Democrats warn that they also want H.R. 4442: Green New Deal for Public Schools Act of 2021 included in this massive bill and will not pass the Infrastructure Bill until it is included. Copy here: Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has said the bill will not get a vote until the Senate passes a separate multi-trillion-dollar package of safety net measures that include New Green Deal for Public Schools.
Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, one of the lead negotiators, said ahead of the vote that the Senate was “about to make history” after presidents over the last few decades have tried and failed to pass an infrastructure package. In reading the text of the Infrastructure Bill one can see that most of the Bill does not relate to infrastructure. Out of a trillion dollars, $73 billion to rebuild the electric grid, $66 billion in passenger and freight rail, $65 billion to expand broadband Internet access, $55 billion for water infrastructure, $40 billion to fix bridges, $39 billion to modernize public transit like buses and $7.5 billion to create the first federal network of charging stations for electric vehicles, that is it.

Here are the 17 Republican senators who voted to advance the bipartisan infrastructure plan:
Roy Blunt of Missouri
Richard Burr of North Carolina
Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia
Bill Cassidy of Louisiana
Susan Collins of Maine
Kevin Cramer of North Dakota
Mike Crapo of Idaho
Lindsey Graham of South Carolina
Chuck Grassley of Iowa
John Hoeven of North Dakota
Mitch McConnell of Kentucky
Lisa Murkowski of Alaska
Rob Portman of Ohio
Jim Risch of Idaho
